There are plenty of ham list but which one is a good
one? I would try ARRL first*not been there myself*.
The problem is that you need to be a member......

I follow the following newsgroups:
rec.radio.amateur.(antenna,equipment,homebrew)
The antenna group is active with a lot of knowledgeable folks who like to
hassle a bit.
The QRN is pretty high in all newsgroups.

Most of the Ham radio lists are pretty specific to some particular
direction. I am on the fringe of "software defined radio" at the SDR group
on Yahoo. The ARRL does not have a list that I am aware of. They do offer
some newsletters but the information is generally non technical.

In general I have found the QRP guys to have the most useful (interesting)
topics.

Just don't search for "amateur video" which is a perfectly legitimate
Ham radio term......  discovered that the hard way.

Although just for fun  I just checked this search term, it doesn't seem
to be quite as raunchy as before.. and even has one relevant hit on the
first page.

Ever since goopile charges money for ranking things have changed. Whoever is not
ponying up enough funds does not show up in the cummershally useful first few
pages of hits. So much for 'not doing evil' (but not much good either). Simple
math shows that 100-150 paying punters will displace *everyone* from the first
few pages of hits. And there are a lot more than 150 paying punters out there,
no matter what the search terms, even with the new 'we advertise in regular hits
but you don't know it' approach seen with ieee.org etc papers. Who knows how
much else is going on that has not yet been understood. STILL goopile is not bad
as a search engine, given the time and patience it requires nowadays. And it
will likely get worse as the number of punters and 'optimizers' increases.

Besides I have recently experienced having a simple site land in goopile hell.
Yes, there is such a thing (look it up). I still don't know what my sin(s) were,
but the exit was difficult and lengthy (hint: exorcism did not help ;-)

To actually answer your question (since I already got pulled into OT
discussion of Google's page ranking), Josh.

I'm on various lists at YahooGroups for ham-related activities.  They're
all typically broken down by radio type or mode or something similar like
that.  Search for your radio's model number (like .....FT-857KILLspamspam.....YahooGroups.com,
as an example) or by mode you're interested in working... the digital
modes are better "represented" online (of course) than are things like SSB
and CW, but there are groups for those too.

Also if you're running specific software or hardware hooked to your rigs,
look for those names at YahooGroups, etc.

I don't find "general" ham radio lists to be too useful.  They're either
full of spam/noise, or they're just TOO general... and never have any
"meat".

We've been running the IRLP mailing list at YahooGroups for a long long
time for node owner/operators and other punters listening in.  I say "we"
but I stopped administrating that list a very long time ago... I just post
there regularly now.  The vast majority of posts to that list right now
are people  trying to help other newbie people who have zero TCP/IP
experience figure out NAT and router port-forwarding.
